Western Desert TarantulaPest Of The Week: The Western Desert Tarantula

If you live in the states of New Mexico or Arizona, or in Northern Mexico, you may have seen a Western Desert tarantula roaming around your property during the rainy summer months. This tarantula is often times referred to as a Mexican Blonde tarantula or an Arizona Blonde tarantula because of their tannish-blonde color. The male spiders may appear more reddish in color, particularly around their abdomens. They may also have black legs. These tarantulas can be huge, by spider standards, reaching body lengths of almost 10 inches.

Although Western Desert tarantulas are considered an eyesore to homeowners throughout the cactus riddled desert areas of the Southwest, they are not considered dangerous. These tarantulas can bite, and these bites can be moderately painful. They are also venomous, but this venom is not very potent. The tiny fibers on the tarantula’s skin can irritate the skin of both humans and predators. Despite these defense mechanisms, many people keep these gentle and docile spiders as pets.
